      CURRENT:LA Food

      CURRENT: LA FOOD is a month-long public arts initiative taking place October 5 through November 3, 2019, commissioned exhibitions, unique art installations, live performances, workshops, and interactive experiences across Los Angeles for free. This is the second iteration of Public Art Triennialfollowing the inaugural 2016 launch of CURRENT: LA Water. Through this important initiative, the City’s Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) pioneers public art opportunities for the City, bring world-class exhibitions to public spaces while igniting important discourse around issues that affect the City and other global cities.

      In partnership with the Institute of Contemporary Art Los Angeles (ICA LA), the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs commissioned 15 artists to take on the subject of food accessibility and equity -- and their response is as varied as the communities that make up the city. CURRENT: LA FOOD

      is an exquisite offering of a variety of art forms that contributes to the
      community’s creative learning, advancing the conversation about global food issues and sheds new light on the precarious balance between pleasure and peril found in food today, and the many ways food gives expression to social and political life.

      Placement of the CURRENT: LA FOOD projects within LA’s burgeoning public transit infrastructure will allow for greater exploration and access, bringing these projects directly to residents and visitors throughout the city. Through an intricate partnership between artists and community members,
      CURRENT: LA FOOD will shed new light on the precarious balance between pleasure and peril found in food today, and the many ways food gives expression to social and political life.
